TU DANCE, led by Alvin Ailey veterans Toni Pierce-Sands and Miami native Uri Sands, has quickly become a leading voice in the Minnesota dance scene. Founded in 2004, TU Dance has garnered audience and critical acclaim for its diverse repertory, versatile artists, and for performances that are engaging, dynamic and generous. Modern dance, classical ballet, African-based and urban vernacular movements are combined in inventive and unpredictable ways to provide opportunities for audiences, whoever they are, to experience the connective power of dance.

The program features If And Or choreographed by Complexions Contemporary Ballet’s Dwight Rhoden and three pieces choreographed by Uri Sands - High Heel Blues, a sassy playful duet; one based on the book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks which tells a riveting story of the collision between ethics, race, and medicine; and Hikari, with a stunning set design by Hawaiian print artist Hiroki Morinoue.
